Leonides Torres was only featured once on AMW as the Arizona fugitive for the 2000 50/50 special. With that in mind, I can assume he was only featured for around 8-15 seconds. Since he's been wanted after 1998, he qualifies for the 2013 Member Most Wanted Lists.
Tucson authorities say that on the evening of Nov 28, 1999, Torres got into a fight with a patron at a crowded bar. A security guard kicked him out of the bar as a result. At 10:30 PM, Torres returned with a shotgun and opened fire at the bar, killing 64-year old Robert Ramos and 58-year old Ruth Todd, three other people were wounded. Patrons at the bar identified Torres as the shooter but authorities reported that there were at least two other shooters with Torres.
Authorities believe he is travelling back and forth between Tucson, Arizona and Mexico. I would have to agree with that. Any other thoughts or comments?
UPDATE from site admin: As of July 24th, 2018, Torres is still listed as a wanted fugitive on Pima County Crime Stoppers (88-CRIME): 88crime.org/leonides-bohorquez-torres/
